    So far Pokemon GO has been an excellent example of how NOT to release a game.

    Pokemon GO was the healthcare.gov of the ios app store.

    It's like day two, and the servers are probably very much getting overloaded by the amount of people trying it out in the already few regions it's been released. Give it a week and should be fine.

    I haven't noticed much connectivity issue. More phone issues as I have an older phone

    That happened to me yesterday, but it started working and haven't had an issue with it, occasionally the servers die but it's not as bad as it was yesterday.

    I like it, kept the kids distracted too.

    Tap to attack, swipe left and right to dodge attacks, if your special bar is full (I didn't see this) hold for a special attack.

    Kotaku has a decent tips page

    Plus all the people trying it out in the regions it hasn't been released in yet.

    If all this shows anything, it is how -not- to release an online app game that has been hyped about for 1 year. Their marketing team should have more than anticipated the heavy load on their servers from everyone worldwide wanting a piece. Releasing it only in a select few countries was bad form.

    I choose team Red....of course everyone around me now is team blue. One good thing is my office is pretty much a pokestop, so I get free stuff all day while working!

    Also, I know CP is a big thing. Your starter, do they have a lot of potential or just given to you to start the game?

    Just given to you. You will still have to boost them.

    For sure, I know they will fix it soon, but they shouldn't have released before thoroughly stress testing their servers. We all knew millions of people would be chomping at the bit to log on.

    You have a ton of people using APK's to access it in regions it's not released yet. They released it in certain regions slowly for that very reason, but they can't help the amount of people using APK's.

    I did manage to catch a Vaporeon last night, after a few tries.
